I agree with the photographer's caption: Boo!!!!!! Because while this *looked* cool - we all watched in awe from our office windows downtown - what an assault on the environment. I hope the city of San Francisco fines the company responsible for this stupid, stupid marketing madness.
Update: The balloons are soy-based and 100% biodegradable. But, unless they bio-degrade in an hour, the point has been completely missed by those who hatched this dumb idea. More here.
Your comments on this image are welcome, and encouraged! And a question for the photographer - brothergrimm - photo - if s/he is so inclined: Is there anything special about this moment, day, trip, or place beyond what you've shared on Flickr that you'd like to add or comment on here? Along with other vivaca visitors, I would love to know more!
